Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Kindly elaborate what you mean by Skeleton. Is it a calcium/ vitamin D supplement ? Please upload its ingredients/ formula to comment further.

Please consult your doctor before deciding on any further course of action.
